Are you running sound through an amplifier? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). the blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, so the power antenna will go down.

Alpine cda 9884 has no sound in cd or ipod mode


actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.

Subwoofer doesn't play through ipod, only radio and cd's


Hook up the remote wire from the head unit (grey w/ orange stripe) to the power antenna wire (blue) on the wiring harness adapter.

Radio sound but NO cd or ipod sound


Radio is screwed.

But try these these steps:

Clean the eye of the head for reading CD. Must open up the radio.

IPod: check for good connections from Ipod to PCB.

Jensen head unit VM9311TS no sound from CD


Should wire HU's Power Const to Amp's Remote On. Instead you wired HU's Power Antenna to Amp's Remote On. So the stock amp got triggered only in radio mode.

No CD sound on Philips DVD/VCR player


I havent seen this model But in the past I have heard this problem arise. It turned out that there was a mute button for the cd only on the remote and there was no indicator to show it. check for a cd mute or go into the cd play menu and check around in there.
